Sedation Dentistry offers anxiety-free dental procedures as the patient is in a deeply relaxed state, though fully responsive. It means something even more important: a comfortable experience – often with no recollection of the time passed. We often hear from patients (link here later) who express their gratitude and delight in their first ever visit to the dentist without fear.
It’s been estimated that almost half of the population has some kind of dental fear, from people who feel a little uncomfortable, to those who are so terrified they can’t set foot in a dental office. Whether it’s fear or something else that’s keeping you away, today’s dentistry gives Dr. Johnson many options for making you comfortable throughout your appointment. Anesthesia can eliminate pain for most people, but sometimes that’s not enough. Sedation dentistry uses medications to relax patients which makes for a totally comfortable dental experience.
Oral sedation is a wonderful option for patients as it allows you to be comfortably sedated through an entire dental visit using just a small pill.
